Free and Forgiven.
Colossians 1:14 (TLB)
14 “Who bought our freedom with his blood and forgave us all our sins.”
If we understand the scripture set before us today. If we do, Jesus should have a dramatic impact on the way we are living right now. The Lord Jesus is in a league of His own when it comes to forgiveness of sins. I doubt I have the same way of dealing with forgiveness as He does. I hope that I don’t view this without knowing the implications for my sins. I reflect and meditate on what happened to the Lord Jesus. When Jesus Christ’s aggressors committed the ultimate crime, they executed their holy Creator.
I keep grudges against my fellow man, am I holding a horrible illegitimate grudge? If the Lord Jesus was able to forgive me of all my iniquities, then why do I still bear grudges against people who hurt me? So in all fairness do I emulate God’s grace in my life?
Abba Father, Lord it is by free grace that I have salvation through faith. And this salvation is not of myself, but it is the gift of You Lord. Today, LORD may I stay in Your grace, if I am proud or arrogant, please forgive me. Let Your Word be over my soul, mind and cleanse my heart. Without You Lord Jesus I cannot face this day. Thank You, for paying the ultimate price on the cross for my sins. All glory and honour due to Your Holy Name. Amen
One thought on “Free and Forgiven”
This is resonating within my spirit. I once learnt that failure to forgive someone its a statement that the blood of Jesus Christ was not enough to forgive that person.So yes when look at it that way you will see how unforgiveness can be toxic.
I say amen to the prayer above
